Prom Gown Manufacturers
Still looking for that perfect dress for prom? These sites have got it!
Once again, prom time is rapidly approaching. Hopefully, by this time you have already begun thinking about who you might like to have for a date during the prom, and who you'll hang out with once you're there. Maybe you have already visited www.promtime.info and gotten an overview of what style of gown you like. The PromTime website displays all of the gowns you see in the PromTime Fashion Showcase. When you click on the gown you like in the PromTime Fashion Showcase, it will take you to a page where you can obtain contact information for that manufacturer. The manufacturers who have their own websites have a link on the contact page that you can "click and go" to visit their site. At some point you're going to choose one special dress... and that is where these sites come in.
Alyce Designs www.alycedesigns.com
Alyce Designs produces several lines, such as bridesmaids and special occasion. Once that special gown is located, you can click on "Find A Store" and put in your state to find the name, city, zip, and phone number for the store nearest you.
Attitudes by Debra www.attitudesbydebra.com
The site also features a store listing organized by state. Simply click on your state's name and see all the retail store listings for that state. If there are no retailers in your area or none close to you, Attitudes provides a "super link," i.e. retail stores where you can special-order your dress and have it shipped to you.
Claire's Collection www.clairescollection.com
Claire's Collection is one of the more creative manufacturers websites because it provides a wealth of content areas, all presented in interesting ways. "Whites" is, of course, their bridal line, the "Fashion Show" flashes four gowns at a time on your screen and lets you click "continue" to have more of them pop up.
Many celebrities wear Claire's gowns. When you see Sandra Bullock in their gown in an Academy Awards photo or Halle Berry donning a Claire's-designed wedding gown, it makes you want to own one of them all the more. Other celebs include singers Shania Twain, Aretha Franklin, and pageant celebrities and entertainment TV journalists Julie Moran and Mary Hart.
Fleur De Lis www.fleurdelisbyjustine.com
Landa Designs www.landadesigns.com
Their store list is one of the speediest store-finders around. Arranged in frames, a click on your states' abbreviation will instantly pull up a list of all the retail stores in that state.
Le Gala Prom www.legalaprom.com
The catalog index is an easy way for you to get the specifics on a particular dress if you already know the style number. The catalog itself is very well detailed and organized, and you can quickly skim through it even while you are viewing larger photos of the gowns. Their store locator has a list menu for both the U.S. and Canada, which are searchable by state or province. If you find a store carrying the line you like and they have a website, the site provides a link on the listing page. Very cool!
Maria's Collections by Putros Couture www.mariascollections.com
Panoply Design www.panoplydesign.com
The ultimate goal is to have you go to one of their retail stores, which offer services such as wardrobe consulting, dyed-to-match shoes, and invitations, among others. The way to find a retail store is through the "store locator." It lists city, store name, phone number, and which lines are carried (bridesmaid, prom, or both). A few listings even have links to the store's website.
Party Time www.partytimeromantics.com
Promenade by Mary's Bridal www.marysbridal.com
Find a store in your area by clicking on your state on the map, or for international visitors, call one of the numbers listed. You may request a 100-page catalog from P.C. Mary's by sending $2.00 to the address listed.
The Crown Collection www.thecrowncollection.com
Tiffany Designs www.tiffanydesigns.com
The above sites, along with the www.PromTime.info website, are wonderful places to search for the gown of your dreams. A good thing to do when you visit these manufacturers' sites is to print out the page of the gown you're interested in and take it to your local retail store. This printout, with the gown photo, style number, sizes, and color choices available, is a great way to ensure you get exactly the dress you want. Good luck in finding that special dress, and have a great time wearing it at prom!
